Our Mission Statement
In our Wauquiez 48 Pilot Saloon we are cruising oceans, experiencing the rich diversity of peoples, cultures and nature while sharing these unique encounters with like-minded sailors.
In the words of George Orwell: ‘Beauty is meaningless until it is shared’.
Enjoy the journey!
